Labour Leadership candidates divided on Trident

The candidates standing for the leadership and deputy leadership of the Scottish Labour Party have a diverse range of views on nuclear weapons, according to a survey by Scottish CND. 

Ken Macintosh and Tom Harris say the UK should retain nuclear weapons. Ian Davidson says Trident should be scrapped. Anas Sarwar says the UK should be looking at alternatives to Trident, including a non-nuclear defence policy. Davidson and Sarwar both say the Scottish Labour conference should look at Trident. Lewis Macdonald  says the UK should keep Trident as a bargaining counter for disarmament and the issue should be dealt with at the UK Policy Forum. Johann Lamont did not reply. Detailed replies.

In addition, an article on Scottish Labour and Trident was published on Labourhame.
